you said, "I can't think of a single show from '86 I'd grade higher than a D+."

Having been at all first 7 post-coma shows, I can say that the "vibe" at those shows was very strong, if not always the music, since jerry was "back" and playing. those shows were definitely more about the "family" (of which we're all part) than the any particular set list.

Thanks for bringing this '86 Althea to our attention. The band ERUPTS at the 7 minute mark.

While 86 wasn't a great year I agree that there are shows that would merit more than a d+. This is a pre coma gig from the Spring tour that is more than serviceable.

Okay, maybe there a couple that I would give a "C" if I was feeling generous. ;) The post coma shows are at least competent and full of high spirits, if not musically impressive, and there are occasional signs of life buried deep within a couple of other shows. But on balance those moments aren't worth the dreck one must wade through to get to them. To each his own, obviously, but personally I can't fathom why anyone would want to listen to anything from this wretched year with so much other superior material to choose from, even within the same decade.

It's an opinion. That's what this board is for. Trust me, I saw my share of shows in '86 and I've listened to plenty others.
